The Cover of Amelia Gray’s “Gutshot” Modulates the Visceral


Amelia Gray’s fiction is sometimes visceral, sometimes revelatory, and often surreal. It’s fitting, then, that the cover of her forthcoming collection Gutshot contains all of those attributes. There’s a very literal sectioning of the figure at its center; there’s an organic-looking noise present that counterbalances the precision of the illustration. It’s one of the most arresting covers we’ve seen in a while.

The cover design is by Charlotte Strick, and the art direction is by Rodrigo Corral. The book will be out in early 2015.
